Good morning lovely people.
I spent yesterday straightening up and mending a couple of things.
Brian ripped my shirred pillowcase so I patched it up.
I also felt I could get some more wear out of a pair of cotton flannel sleep pants I made so I took some of my leftover flannel and made a rather interesting patch.
But I have to say the most disappointing part of my sewing yesterday was the outcome of the sewing of my Simplicity.
Grrr!! For some reason the sizing was super dooper off!! The bust was larger than needed and the waist and skirt were insanely large.
What the hell!??
Not to mention I look rather frontier right now because the sleeves and skirt are not hemmed.
I am talking a good 4" off of the waist and hips are needed. Wow, how could I be this far off!? I'm never this far off! Oh well. I think I'll put this dress on the back burner until I get the energy to rip some seams and remove and relocate the pockets.
I'm going to adjust the pattern and cut out another dress most likely tomorrow. Aw well, sometimes you win, sometimes you loose.
